In this novel the focus shifts from John Carter, Warlord of Mars, and Dejah Thoris of Helium, protagonists of the first three books in the series, to their son, Carthoris, prince of Helium, and Thuvia, princess of Ptarth.

Subject: Philosophy and adventure
This novel is a remarkable work where the adventures of the heros and heroines of Barsoom are intermingled with the philosophical discourse. This all forms great sustenance for the heart and the intellect.

Let me start by saying that if you've enjoyed any of the previous "John Carter" Mars books then you'll enjoy this one just as much. It's pulp sci fi with a thrilling constant action edge that keeps you listening. Yes you might see the end coming but that doesn't make the trip any less fun.

The story follows the son of John Carter as he finds, loses and then hunts down love! As with all of the other novels much that is new to the reader is introduced as the world is explored. In the previous novels there was always some new factor, new races, new location to be discovered and this story follows that pattern.

Swords are drawn just as redily as rifles and everyone has a grudge to settle so the action just does not stop.

As a superb bonus the reader of this audio book is excellent, and although he doesn't put on voices he does a tremendous and excellent job of reading this novel, a professional job in fact.
